How does the bounciness of a golf ball affect the distance that it will travel?
It is observed that the brand A golf balls have the highest number of bounces on average, and hence will be considered the most bouncy of the three. The brand C golf balls are the least bouncy.
|Golf ball brand||Number of bounces|
|Ball 1||Ball 2||Ball 3||Ball 4||Ball 5||Average|
It is also observed that the most bouncy type of ball (Brand A) traveled the furthest, while the least bouncy (Brand C) traveled the shortest distance.
|Brand type||Average distance traveled by the golf ball(meters)|
|/td>||Ball 1||Ball 2||Ball 3||Ball 4||Ball 5||Average|
The results show that the bouncier balls are able to travel further compared to the less bouncy balls. Here's an illustration of what probably occured. Regardless of the distance of the flight of each ball, what probably happened was that the bouncier balls bounced a greater number of times and over a larger distance.
Never stand anywhere in front of a golfer who's about to take a swing. Beware of swinging clubs - which can cause severe injury
